This is a painting entitled "Breakfast" I did a while back. The piece was done using the mixed media process I had developed in my college days. I met a very lovely couple from Ireland who were kind enough to purchase the piece from me. The woman told me that they were going to put the painting over their small two person table in their kitchen where they ate breakfast together everyday.
-12" x 12" deep body stretcher bar, canvas, mixed media, (2005)
If you look a little bit, you will notice that I drew a set of curved teeth where the neck is now represented and drawn over. That was my initial reaction relating to composition, but decided those proportions were too predictable so I drew a pair of lips and a nose. From there I decided the dude just plain old needed a mask. So I put one on him. I later modified this piece digitally for a coloring book project with Super Dudes Justin Gray and Peter Wonsowski. I miss those two guys a lot.

Just finished this piece last night for a friend of mine. I did another piece a couple of years ago that is up in my house (same process) that this friend wanted. I did not want to part with it for sentimental reasons so I used the same process and look to create this one. 14.25" x 7.5" scratched plywood with spray paint and acrylic.
